web pages remain on your website. It returns, checks a few more web pages, and then

Armed with this information from the XML sitemap, it now becomes possible to index
your website much more quickly and accurately. If many web pages have stayed the
same on your site, the search engine spiders don't need to waste time rechecking
old pages. With the help of the XML sitemap, the search engine spiders can skip
